It also includes important disciplines in the areas of customs management and trade facilitation, technical barriers to trade, public procurement, investment, telecommunications, e-commerce, intellectual property rights, labour protection and the environment. The agreement provides for the immediate or phasing out of tariffs and barriers to bilateral trade in goods and services originating in the United States and/or Colombia. The application of tariff quotas for COTPA is dealt with in separate instructions in the form of a quota booklet (QBTs) from the Central Quota Department. These instructions include the quota period, quota opening procedures, limitation limits, applicable HTS numbers and all specific treatment instructions. The instructions are available on the CBP website on the Quota Enforcement and Administration page (see “Programs and Management”).
